Making Rare Documents Accessible

Browse our collection of digitized documents at your leisure—outside the library’s regular hours!

Since its beginning, Guampedia has made available e-publications and digitized documents previously accessible only by an actual visit to the University of Guam or the Agana Library.

Guampedia is not only Guam’s online encyclopedia, but it’s also a digital repository of some rare resources about our island, or materials that have limited accessibility to the general public. Guampedia also provides digitization services for certain workshops and conferences related to Guam or Pacific history and makes those summaries or proceedings available on our website. All publications are viewable using a digital publishing platform known as ISSUU and can be opened right on your computer or e-reader.

CAHA Workshops

With hosting the Festival of the Pacific Arts in 2016, the Guam Council on the Arts and Humanities Agency (CAHA) provided workshops for artists and other cultural producers who wanted to participate in the event. The workshops were meant to help FestPac delegates and participants to stay up-to-date with the festival coordinating committee’s plans; to learn the important connections between art and history in the creative process, and to be inspired to create new and interesting works to share in the region’s most significant celebration of indigenous Pacific Island cultural arts.
